Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba: the seductive elegance of a warrior
Among the most prestigious soldiers in history, Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, born in Montilla, known as the Great Captain, stands out. World historiography evokes Sun Tzu, Subutai, Napoleon or Nelson, and omits the Spanish military genius who forever revolutionized the "art of war", who went from medieval heaviness to modern agility, masterfully combining infantry, cavalry and artillery, supported by the navy.
His military skill in the "art of war" would give him victory in mythical battles such as Garellano and Ceriñola, where he defeated the cream of the crop of the invincible French army. Europe, amazed, surrendered to the greatness of this great soldier, inspiring other great heroes of history such as Erwin Rommel, called "the desert fox".
However, his military skills were not his only virtue. The young Gonzalo was extremely beautiful, and so much so that, according to rumors, Queen Elizabeth fell madly in love with him —a true gentleman of the time—. He stood out for his good treatment of the defeated enemy, loyalty to his king and, above all, respect for the word given, which makes him the prototype of Prince Charming typical of a story.
These values are what Alexandra de V has wanted to capture in this handkerchief, where the beauty and seduction of his colors intermingle with the ingenuity and greatness of Don Gonzalo.
Alexandra de V goes further and her talent dares to break with the established rules, to the point that it seems that her garment demands the famous beads from the Great Captain and in this way, she dresses a current woman, with grace and experience, to which adds a unique glamor and seduction in fashion.
A scarf capable of representing the most exquisite distinction and, furthermore, taking you back to that epic moment where the mother country led the world. This is precisely what Alexandra de V transmits in this garment: the weighting of women before a new world that she is capable of leading, under the elegance, beauty and style that represents the figure of a great Spanish hero such as Don Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba. , better known as The Great Captain.
